I realize that this is 9 years after the question was asked, but, this is what I have found...I'm sure others are also wondering:

I have searched these boards and others, with no consice answer to where did the Fryman name originate.

I did find a story on a retailer's website that may be the closest thing to it's origination.

The site states in part that, "The name FRYMAN was originally from the Norman given name FRANC, in origin an ethnic name for a FRANK, a member of the Germanic people who inhabited the lands around the river Rhine in Roman times."

To see the whole version, visit:

I hope this helps any of you also searching! If you find information otherwise, please keep us posted!
